  27. Bioethics and Women: Across the Life Span.Mary Briody Mahowald - 2006 - Oxford University Press.
    All persons, while different from one another, have the same value: this is the author's relatively uncontroversial starting point.

Because the book's focus is women's health care, gender justice, a necessary component of justice, is central to examination of the issues. Classical pragmatists and feminist standpoint theorists are enlisted in support of a strategy by which gender justice is promoted. (...)
